CIA Website Attacked By Hackers, U.S. Official Confirms

SHARE:



A U.S. official has confirmed that the website belonging to the Central Intelligence Agency, which was inaccessible for hours on Wednesday evening, suffered a cyber attack.
Hacker group LulzSec, which spearheaded attacks on PBS.org, Sony, the Senate, and other organizations, claimed responsibility for taking CIA.gov offline, tweeting, "Tango down - cia.gov - for the lulz."
Politico reports:
The disruption on the CIA’s public website Wednesday did not involve “any kind of outside intrusion,” a U.S. official told POLITICO. [...]
The technical issues cia.gov experienced are more consistent with a “distributed denial of service attack,” which is an attempt to overwhelm the servers of a website so people cannot access it.
